Arp, Contributor
Full name:

Male, 1962, Dutch (from the Netherlands, Europe). Name: Arp - not an overly common name and as such I have found no need for usage of middle name or surname :o)

Bugs: Nincompoop beginner hobbyist. Taking snapshots of bugs allsorts since summer 2005, with a focus on documenting species. Not a photographer (low end digital compact cameras only) and not a biologist/entomologist. Interest in bugs started with first snapshots. Before that absolutely zero.

Areas of somewhat elevated interest: Ladybeetle larvae, Woodlice, Harvestmen, Earwigs, Scorpionflies, Snakeflies and slowly beginning work on some others. Nowhere near being an "expert" but trying to learn and help to better document species that get little attention from the masses and/or are scarcely represented with images on the internet.
